Jerwood Art Fund Makers Open 2021

Deadline to apply: Wednesday 26 August at 5PM

Jerwood Art Fund Makers Open 2021 is a major award for five early-career UK-based artists and makers to develop and present ambitious new works.

The award offers a supported, high-profile national platform for artists and makers who are between one and ten years of beginning their professional artistic practice to take risks at a pivotal moment in their careers. It seeks to raise the profile and visibility of making processes within the visual arts and create a space for critical dialogue between the craft and visual arts sectors.

Open to individuals, collaborations and collectives, proposals are invited for bold new work(s) using all forms of making and material experimentation.

Proposals are welcome from those working in all materials and progressive practices including but not limited to: ceramics, glass, jewellery, metal, paper, textiles, wood, fashion and sculpture.

There are five awards of £8,000 each plus curatorial and production support from the Jerwood Arts team to support the making of new work over a six month period for a group exhibition in London, followed by a three-venue national tour through to 2022 including Aberdeen Art Gallery, Scotland.
